I kinda applied just for the hell of it, since it was free to apply and everything. I live in PA and every other school I applied to is in Philly, NY, or DC... and that general sort of mid-atlantic corridor is where I think I'd wanna live/work. Now those damn Californians go and dangle free tuition in front of my face. It's fun the way the choices get more complicated every time I hear back from a school.
It blows my mind how many people applied to UCI "just for the hell of it" and are now so nonchalant about getting in. Doesn't UCI want students who are passionate and eager to attend the school? Why would they want to offer full tuition and invest in a class of students that didn't have a strong desire to attend in the first place?In any case, congratulations to the original poster, I guess.
